REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA - Protesters padlocked the gate of ASEAN Secretariat in Jakarta on Friday after the ASEAN representatives refused to meet them. The protesters demanded the ASEAN to stop violence on Rohingya in Myanmar.
"Without concrete action, then ASEAN is better to be locked," the spokesman of the protestors said.
About five protestors tried to chain and padlock the gate of the ASEAN Secretariat. The Coordinator of Legal Advocacy Center and Human Rights, Heru, reminded the protestors that their act was the form of solidarity for human being. The act, he was, was a humanitarian advocacy towards violence in Myanmar.
"It is not because religious reason, it is because humanitarian reason since we are all human beings," Heru said.
